Take A Lantern-Lit Sleigh Ride To A Winter Speakeasy In New York At The Oldest Operating Lodge In The Adirondack Park

As much as many of us New Yorkers would love to bask in our summer weather all year long, there are plenty of perks that come along with the arrival of our winter season. Once the snow starts falling here on the East Coast, you’ll see people cozying up by the fire while others will be quick to head out into the fresh powder for a classic snowball fight. Don’t let the season slip through your fingers, because now is the perfect time to start planning a trip up north to enjoy a lantern-lit sleigh ride in New York that takes you to a little-known speakeasy.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

What was the biggest snowfall in New York?

It should come as no surprise that Oneida County holds the record for single day snowfall – on February 1, 1966, 50 inches of powder fell in one intense storm. Other top snowfalls include ones you might remember – the November 20, 2014 storm that dumped 47.5 inches of Erie County, and an early 1988 storm on January 6 that did the same in Lewis county. Two other dates in history dumped more than 40 inches of snow on the Empire State, December 10, 1995 in Jefferson County (45 inches), and March 14, 1993 in Franklin County (42 inches).
